Agents / Buyers | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

A wooden grain elevator at Libau, on the CNR Victoria Beach Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of St. Clements, was built in 1967 by Federal Grain. Sold to Manitoba Pool Elevators in 1972, it closed around 2001 and was sold into private ownership. The elevator appeared to be unused at the time of a 2018 site visit.
